Shot over a four-year period, Linda Goode Bryant and Laura Poitras' Flag Wars is a poignant and very personal look at a community in Columbus, Ohio, undergoing gentrification. What happens when gay white homebuyers move into a working-class black neighborhood? As the new residents restore the beautiful but run-down homes, black homeowners must fight to hold onto their community and heritage. The inevitable clashes expose prejudice and self-interest on both sides, as well as the common dream to have a home to call your own. Winner of the Jury Award at the South by Southwest Film Festival, Flag Wars is a candid, unvarnished portrait of privilege, poverty and local politics taking place across America. An Independent Television Service (ITVS) and National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) co-presentation. A Diverse Voices Project (DVP) Selection.

Are you human?
If so, you should watch this film. This is the reality of greed. This is the reality of the War Economy and the Economic Draft. This is the reality of Poverty for Profit.

Don't let them lie to you, the economy is available to all IF they quit excluding the locals. #NativeRights A business plan that includes welfare wages is not a business plan it is a welfare scheme.
